Advent 2008

Here are some random pics from our Advent season....only 10 more days left! What kind of Advent are you making yours to be?

Here is our loving sacrifices -the birthday gifts we are giving to Jesus-for His Birthday. Daily, we have been taking a sacrifice mission from our jar. Some of them are: make your bed without being asked; do someone else's chore without being noticed; say a special prayer for someone sick or poor; my favorite happens to be ... be Mommy's helper for the day :) etc... This has been very helpful for the children-so concrete and practical, and at times hard too but great learning tool! I have to say that it is VERY helpful for the adults too!!!

Here are the classics: snowflakes and counting garland of rings till Christmas. The kids love to see how short it is getting!!!

Lastly, here are the empty stockings ready to be filled in 10 days as we await the birth of our Lord Jesus! Let us pray for each other in these last 10 days of Advent.

God bless,
